Alaska freight rates Freight shipping rates in Alaska can sometimes be expensive due to the lack of roads and the sheer size of the state. Thankfully, most of the freight is located at the major port and in the cities. The Port of Anchorage is the major freight hub of the state. Freight rates leaving Alaska are almost always cheaper, especially refrigerated trucking rates, since most food is imported from the outside. LTL freight rates in Alaska are calculated on a stable tariff and do not usually increase or decrease based on seasonality. However, shipping less than truckload to Alaska is generally more expensive.
New Mexico freight rates New Mexico freight shipping, especially truckload, is affected by the early produce season as well as intermodal movements across the Southwest. The produce market during the spring and summer months make freight shipping to New Mexico cheaper than leaving. The rural areas of New Mexico can be harder to find capacity due to low volume, but the freight rates are definitely affordable. The ease and cost of shipping into or out of New Mexico can be heavily based on proximity to major metro areas.
